With a fueling box on it, I think you'd be in the 430-450hp range since it only has 100hp injectors. We built my friends 01 pretty similarly Hrvp44, Edge drag comp, and mach 4's (150hp) with an Hx40 first and switched to a Bell USB later. I didn't really like either turbo. Anyways, we saw a 468hp dyno run with the hx40, then the next couple times we tried to run it, it wouldn't keep traction on the dyno. And the last time it broke the dyno, or the dyno broke while it was on it.
Hp calculations based on wieght and ET and trap speed put that right at about 550hp. If they are good 100hp injectors with a drag comp it should get near the 500hp mark. Those turbos don't have great manners and it got very hot. The pyro would try to wrap back around I'm guessing between 1800-2100 degrees. Advances in turbos have been huge in the last couple of years though, and the truck had already been sold by that point. I think it could be done a lot better now.
Either way, you'll have yourself a very fun truck.
